and those who want to destroy obama care. and congresswoman ellmers and her colleagues in the republican party are not asking questions with the intent of making the program work better, making it easier to get on obama care, get through on the computer. if that were to happen, popularity would increase, which is the last thing they want. so this goes to motive. their motive is to undermine and kill this program. the problem we have is that they don't have the votes to do that. that won't happen until 2017 at the very earliest and very likely not then because by then the program will be entrenched and popular. so they have lost the war and they're trying to win a couple of battles in the meantime. i feel badly for her constituents. i thought you asked her a very good question which is the reason that they're going to see premium increases is because north carolina and some other states controlled by extremist republicans have refused free federal money to help with the citizens of their state. this is just -- it's really almost a tragedy for some families. >> because just to use north ca
obama care is more than just a web site. now do some republican lawmakers agree. senator john thune joins us. >> nice to see. >> you i will tell you when they get a phrase going any administration they really work it. you agree with the president on this and the administration. >> unfortunately for the american people, they are right', it is more than just a web site. it's it's a lot of very harmful impacts of this law. and more and more of that is coming to the surface now. we are seeing more evidence. a lot of report not guilty last few days about people being dropped. cbs news reporting that 2 million people have been booted from their healthcare. nbc is reporting that 50 to 75% of the 14 million people who get their insurance in individual market place will be dropped. some are saying that could go as high as 80 o%. i mean, this is the drop coverage, the cancellations, increased premium rates, this really is a disaster. it's much more than a web site problem. >> basic math, this is what i don't understand. you can always sign up for it before you get sick. develop something sign
." the republican party is on a bit of a losing streak, don't you think? they tried to defeat president obama in 2008. lost that baby. tried to get in in 2012, lost again. they tried to proclaim the affordable care act unconstitutional. that didn't work. they nearly defaulted on the country's debts. but they lost that one too. david denby wrote cruz resembles one of those war chariots with blades flashing from the wheels. when things go wrong, he only sharpens the blades. he seeks the presidency, of course and he appears to be doing it by sowing as much confusion and disorder as possible. in an interview he did with abc with fusion network -- i think that's spanish translation. cruz said that president obama is abusing his power. >> you think president obama has been abusing his power? >> i think he has absolutely been abusing his power. and when you have a president that says regardless of whether congress acts, i'm going to force my agenda on the american people, that's wrong. >> alex and cath lekathleen tha for joining us. these remarks are powerful. i'm wondering what we can point to or h
obama. he came out of the government shutdown and blamed senate republicans. people in his own party. ted cruz is not looking to govern. he is looking to tear asunder and kneecap those who are trying to govern. and he certainly has said some outrageous things about the president of the united states. this is someone who voted against confirming the secretary of defense, the secretary of treasury, the secretary of state, who voted against the farm bill and has turned around and manipulated those votes and said the president is abusing his power. it's shocking. >> i think it's important to note that i went back and read cruz's senior thesis at princeton. he has been concerned about the role of the president way back to his college years. i'm completely anti-castro. so i'm with him 100% on castro. i just don't think castro has anything to do with president obama. >> i grew up in cuba under a strong military oppressive dictatorship. i think the most ominous words i have heard were the last when our president said if congress does not act, i will act unilaterally. not much different than
republicans towards president obama for failing to reach that so-called status of forces agreement. the inevitable acronym being sofa with al maliki. but at this point i think many people are concerned with all the blood and treasure that has been expensed, american blood and treasure in iraq over the course of the last 12 or 11 years, that something must come of it. al maliki has to bring stability there to iraq. and while there will be opposition towards allowing those armed shipments, those arm purchases from the united states by the al maliki government that is expected to go forward, del. >> mike viqueira joining us live from the white house, mike, thank you very much. >>> by all accounts it was an ambitious order, ending syria's ability to produce its chemical weapons and now it appears to have been done and done ahead of schedule. the announcement coming today from the world chemical watchdog group says that syria can't produce any new chemical weapons but damascus still has to did he dry its currendestroy its currel weapons arsenal. >> reporter: on august 21st at least 1400

, the president. >> his approval rating is double the republican party. >> it's a classic example of what they're tired of. they're tired of politicians like the president making promises they can't read. >> a headline reads the obama sabotage campaign. it argues that some of the problems with healthcare.gov have to do with the roadblocks put in place by republicans. most republican governors declined to create their own insurance exchange and in fact 36 exchanges, far more than intended. the tea party patriots website suggested that since washington was not equipped to handle so many exchanges, quote, both financially and otherwise this means the entire law could implode on itself. is there a little bit of disingenuousness to hammer the obama administration for problems that they clearly wanted to happen and wanted to contribute to? >> well, i don't think the website not being able to sign up six people is a problem with republicans not liking obama care. >> well, it is with 36 states not setting up their own exchanges. >> tens of millions of dollars on a website that doesn't work. it has not
the rust host: i think we got your point. scott, texas, republican caller. caller: obama told us the fundamental change that he was going to bring to this country -- what he was talking about was socialism. he was not remotely all five for this job. none of his background qualified him for the presidency. he would not be qualified to sit on your school board or your local city council. he is a joke. point, do you think that is what has led to his explanations and this issue of accountability that we are reading about in the papers? caller: it is extreme narcissism. he is never going to be blamed for anything. up to this point, the mainstream press has gone along with it because he was the one. all you have to do is look at his background and you know he was never remotely qualified. he is not even a patriot. he detests this country. is capitalist economics. on our facebook page posts this -- nothing is obama's fault. you last saw this behavior from little johnnie, i didn't do it. alyssa, democratic caller. caller: this is teresa. host: sorry about that. go ahead. the twoi agree w
recent race for the white house from republican back stabbing to president obama's feelings about president clinton to a possible move to switch running mates. nbc's andrea mitchell has the book report tonight. >> hey, guys. how you doing? >> reporter: joe biden looked in charge in the oval office today. but two years ago the president's top aides polled whether to dump biden for hillary clinton. according to the book "double down" biden dodged a bullet he never saw coming when focus groups proved adding clinton wouldn't improve the president's odds. >> i think it's important to know that campaigns and pollsters as part of campaigns test a lot of things. >> reporter: biden was later shut out of campaign strategy sessions after he endorsed gay marriage two weeks before mr. obama planned to. >> i am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women -- >> reporter: the book has new details on obama's edgy relationship with bill clinton. when the two tried to bond over a round of golf, obama couldn't even finish 18 holes telling an aid, i like him in dos
and horror story politically. president obama faces an angry and fed up public in our new "wall street journal" poll. anger over the shut down and the break down of getting things done found its way to the white house. republicans are not doing any better. the party has terrifying numbers lurking outside their window as well and the leaders are bearing the brunt of the blame. plus, a house call. secretary sebelius sits down for apologies and caustic questions from congress. we will hear what the health insurers themselves think this is all headed. good morning from new york. happy halloween, it's thursday, october 31st. this is "the daily rundown." let's get to the first reads of the morning. it's halloween and boy, is it scary. the american public is mad at hell and they are not going to take it anymore. with the one-two punch and the health care debacle, they belt a devastating blow to washington and the parties and all their leaders. they describe the results as a shock wave. they will show how much recent events have sapped the american spirit. remember the expression? during the s
take a look at the wall street journal poll finding the battle over obama care have not republicans any favor. the new poll finds 22% view the gop favorably, while 52% view them unfavorably. they enjoyed a 44% rating and back then, frank thompson was representing the state of tennessee in the u.s. senate. thompson who was an attorney, columnist and brief presidential contender has turned his real-life roles into memorable characters and perhaps most notably as district attorney ath you are branch on "law and order." >> well, now, he can add broadway to his considerable resume. thompson is currently playing judge omar noos in "a time to kill." all of us are here for one reason, to serve justice in this case. let me make one thing real clear, i won't tolerate any monkey business, you understand? >> former senator fred thompson is with me now. it is great to have you here and "a time to kill" was great, as i was telling you i was there on opening night. when you hear the poll numbers of the republican party now, what would you say to your friends in washington, d.c., about how to improve t
. i want to switch gears and address the obama care debate, sir. i spoke with republican congressman tom cole a few moments ago who said the president should have perhaps conceded to their demands for a delay in obama care up to a year perhaps. that could have avoided these glitches. what's your take on that? >> no, i think he's wrong. everybody in fact i predicted six months ago there would be problems because anytime you try as big a social program as this, where you're trying to bring 30 million people into a program that have never been involved in health insurance before, and many of whom don't understand computers and are -- you're going have glitches. so you have to power through it. we did the same thing with social security. in 1935, you had 21 million people that did not have a social security number. we had to issue a social security number for everyone. we had to sort ought owl the smiths and connect the smiths to their income to do this social security program. it was very difficult to do. it was a mess at the beginning. but it's working just fine now. i think this is go
jobs. >> meantime, republicans are doubling down today on the problems that be have plagued the obama care website with senator dan coats of indiana delivering the weekly gop response. >> too many americans still cannot even access the online exchanges and for the few that have, their experiencing sticker shock. the president told us that obama care is more than a website. i agree. it it is more than just a website and the problems run far deeper than a few technological glitches. >> well, the white house released a progress report late friday on the website fix saying it is improving with users now waiting an average of less than a second for pages to load compared to eight seconds in the first few weeks. teams are working to improve the application process and increase system speed and efficiency. another round of fixes is planned for this weekend. in fact, i'm taking a look at a note being told from 9:00 p.m. tonight till 9:00 a.m. tomorrow morning, the website will be down and it will be fixed at that point. highway the online fixes may be coming, there's damage to the program's i

, if obama care succeeds either way, the republicans, having tried 48, whatever times to repeal it, are not going to look good either way. so they're pretty much all in in terms of making this, dooming this program to the greatest extent that they can. and, you know, the program is going to -- and the president's fortunes and the republican fortunes are going to rise or fall based on the success of this program and not what anybody says. >> absolutely. mckay, senate majority leader harry reid believes that ted cruz, being the gop nominee in 2016, would actually prove to be the end of the gop. take a listen to this. >> if i didn't care so much about our country, i would hope he would get the republican nomination for president. because that would be the end of the republican party. >> what do you think? >> i think a lot of republicans are not too enthusiastic about taking advice from harry reid. >> i understand that. but the point he makes? >> i think, you know, the big question -- >> you can see him winning a large number of primaries. he would appeal to the base. >> no, no. >> he'

plans they like. this is not about republicans having an outcry of obama care. average americans are starting to feel the impact of a very flawed health plan. they are nervous about what it means for the future. >> they did not prepare. they only talked about the great things. they never talked about transitions that are difficult. president. even when you may think it's going to be great, you have to explain there will be changes. >> obama never focused on this the way it would be a signature issue. i talked about the signature. >> never when he wanted. this is the weirdest thing. this was -- do you know that the pledge for health care in the first term came from staff aids who said you better have something to say. we went ahead and made this pledge. >> he was never the health care guide. the primary with the first run for president, he was against the individual mandate. he bludgeoned hillary on that issue. i would turn back to the poll numbers. the numbers have not changed that much. it's even split on how they feel about it. obama's numbers have gone down because he hasn't b

auliffe is facing off against republican ken cuccinelli. the gop has built a race as a referendum on obama care. phil deblasio has been the first democrat to lead new york city since 1989. polls have given him huge leads over republican joe lhota. in new jersey, governor chris christie is hoping for a second term. democrat barbara buono has painted christie as someone who wants to be president not governor. a new poll gives christi with a 19-point lead. and a more that 60-point advantage with independents. >>> if you tried logging onto the obama care health care exchange this morning, you probably noticed it was offline. operators temporarily shut down the site in attempt to make improvements sunday. mitt romney said the fiasco is rotting president obama's second term. >> perhaps the most important lesson the president, i think, failed to learn was, you have to tell the american people the truth. and when he told the american people that you can keep your health insurance if you wanted to keep that plan, period, he said that time and again. >> right. >> he wasn't telling the truth. >> but gover

state that voted for president obama by 17 points last 84, a blue state that last voted for a republican presidential candidate in 1988 that last elected a republican to the senate more than 40 years ago, there has been no effort by the national democrats in the new jersey race, no campaign swings by obaum. no visits by the clintons. they're not even trying. christie hasn't even had to break sweat here. he's going to win and win big. then he will get to go around the country telling republicans how electable he s. how he and only he is in position to win over blue state america and win back the white house. of course, there is a reason the white house hasn't made this a fight. probably because of this. >> the brought has been all over this. he deserves great credit. i have been on the phone with him yesterday i said personally three times, he gave me his number at the white house, told me to call him if i needed anything. he absolutely means it. >> that's right. >> it's been very good working with the president and he and his administration have been coordinating with us great. it's wond
